The Bike Builder room offers splendid views over the canal. The bathroom, including a freestanding bathtub, is the perfect place to soak your tired limbs after a long day of biking around the city. Because as the saying goes; ‘when in Rome…’. a trip to Amsterdam is not complete without a bike ride through the city and along its countless canals and bridges. But a stay in this bicycle-themed room comes close!
The main feature is the large high wheeler in the bathroom, dating back to around 1900. This high wheeler was the first engine to be called a ‘bicycle’. A deep door cabinet, custom made for its original owner, provides storage space for your clothes. Two wooden wheels of a 1920s racing bike were repurposed into nightstands and two carbide lamps got a second life as bedside lamps.
The Bicycle Room is modest in size, but mighty in appeal. Where better to crawl in bed with a book after a busy day, than here?
Like most of our rooms, this room offers a beautiful canal view through its numerous windows. Fitting the theme of the room, the designer cleverly crafted custom items and curated unique finds. Together with the original details, this room oozes the allure of adventure and travel.
Two messing sextants, instruments used to measure the distance between two objects for navigation purposes, serve as esthetic reading lights. The desk is an old cartographer’s secretary. The nightstands are made of an old Art-deco travel trunk, sawn in half. The open bathroom including a freestanding claw foot bathtub further adds to the already abundant comfort. Above it, a large, ancient map of Amsterdam will make your mind travel to past days.
Enjoy this comfortable room as a perfect base for navigating through everything Amsterdam has to offer.
